PWRDF & Canadian Foodgrains Bank – i care postcard campaign

Send a postcard to Prime Minister Trudeau to say you care about Canada’s role in ending global poverty and hunger. The i care postcards are available at the back of the church. The card reads:

Canadian aid plays a key role in making the world a better place for everyone. It’s what we aspire to be as Canadians—compassionate and generous. Let’s demonstrate these values and increase our support for things we care about, such as ensuring that everyone has enough food, helping those displaced by conflict, creating opportunities for women and girls to flourish, and enabling farmers and their communities to adapt to a changing climate. I am proud that Canadian aid is making a difference, and I believe we can do more for the 815 million people who go to bed hungry. As you decide how much Canada contributes towards ending global poverty, please remember that I care.


WAICC School Supplies Campaign: Each summer, WAICC representatives shop the sales looking for school supplies for area students in need of assistance. Members of our parish have generously supported this campaign over the past 15 years. Special envelopes are at the back of the church if you would like to contribute. This year's campaign will end on Sunday, September 2nd. Thank you for your support.
